I saw The Game Plan yesterday (which was pretty good - well better than I would have expected..), and caught 'How to hook up your home theater' before hand. It was a good short, I really enjoyed it because I reminded me of why I always loved Goofy. It does play up on the nostaglia, and the old styling.

Seemed to catch a lot of people off guard, I heard a lot of "Oh there's a cartoon too", and some giggling in the audience (particularly my Mother who I had taken out for the day).

Also there was a new indent at the beginning that I hadn't seen before for Walt Disney Animation which caught me off guard, and I think is a good idea. Does anyone know if this is going to be used for all shorts and animated movies now in addition to the 'Walt Disney Pictures' one?

Would make sense to show the difference between PIXAR and DISNEY animations and also Disney animation and Disney pictures.

All in all a success I'd say. Nice start to the new shorts. Hope they keep it up. It'd be nice to be able to download this from iTunes (at a reasonable cost ;) ) someday.

btw. I'm new so hello everybody!

Hey sjwatsi! Welcome!

The Disney Animation logo premiered on the front of Meet The Robinsons last March. It will be used on all in-house shorts and features from WDAS.

Three new Goofy shorts coming to Disney+ next month. Sounds very promising!

Oh, WHEW--They're going back to their National Treasure "How To Hook Up Your Home Theater" well for pandemic jokes.

I opened the thread just gritting my teeth that they were going to try and double-down on the Disney Channel Ugly-Mickey shorts, for Parks synergy. >_<

I'm looking forward to "Binge Watching" the most. Could one of the shows be "MinnieVision"? ;)

Such a wave of nostalgia, right from the title card. If there's anything to complain about, it's the length. Way too short. Felt like just as each short was getting going they end abruptly.

Nice…I need to catch all these. Cute use of the Mickey's Birthday Party short's music from when Goody makes the cake for when, er, Goofy makes the cake. I see what they did there…

There's a play all option, at least over here. They are cute, only as I said too short.
